Why I do what I do

This website will give you a glimpse into my work as an artist,  community builder and activist. I have been negotiating the world through the lens of a creative entrepreneur for the last two decades. It's been a wonderful journey with a lot of learning and collaborating with people I deeply respect.
In the coming years, I believe that creative thinkers will be crucial to document, stitch, hold and present the world. We are at the very edge of collapse on one side, and of a future that can spin out into unimaginable wonders on the other. I believe we can get to the happier side by working together!

Deja vu

Since the past two weeks, I have not been able to post on the blog. The above work is done about two weeks ago. I can say that I have utilised this time to collect experiences which will help me in my new work. Travelling to deserts, cities and beaches, I hope to create new work with new vigour.
This above blue landscape though done before can relate to what I have seen after. I think its quite exciting that sometimes what you have created is what you will see later… Hee hee, quite silly but it’s a thought that sometimes in the depth of your mind are images which can relate to approaching sights and experiences. (The landscape I saw was greyish in the day and blue-ish after sunset…)
Happy New Year my 3For Darlings!!

  • hey…have you guys read Murakami? He’s a lot into parallel worlds…dream, reality, dream – he keeps taking you in and out and in until you no longer know where you are. Dont know why this is connected – but I thought of him when you made that comment about images so deep in your sub-conscious that you feel like you’ve been there when you see a corresponding image in the real world.

  • very nice work. very very nice. good feeling, intense. when i look at it, i get a sense of night.. deep skies and the blackness looks to me like crows – birds in the night/twilight. i know you’re thinking sea, but isn’t art a highly subjective, and isolated experience? well, viewing it?
    actually i think that its an isolated experience – period. yes, you talk about art, compare etc etc. but when it comes down to creating, you’re all alone. you, and your thoughts, and your canvas.
    i really see you evolving in this piece. i like the direction its going. quite mature. a coming together of study and instinct. its where you really want to be ultimately – isn’t it?

  • Yes, I think art is highly subjective.
    What I paint after I see, is not what I have seen.
    I think it combines with what I felt.
    Like parallel worlds of the ‘seen’ and ‘felt’.
    This I think is Art
